Beyonce Calls for End of SARS Amid Protests in Nigeria

Beyonce is sharing a message of support amid the police protests in Nigeria.

The 39-year-old entertainer took to her Instagram on Tuesday night (October 20) calling for the end of the police unit know as the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

“I am heartbroken to see the senseless brutality taking place in Nigeria,” Beyonce wrote. “There has to be an end to SARS.”

“We have been working on partnerships with youth organizations to support those protesting for change,” Beyonce continued. “We are collaborating with coalitions to provide emergency healthcare, food and shelter. To our Nigerian sisters and brothers, we stand by you.”

Over the past few weeks, demonstrators have been taking to the streets daily to protest against police brutality in Lagos and while also protesting SARS amid claims of kidnapping, harassment, and extortion.
